, frank smyth, and nia malika-henderson, reporter for "the washington post." mark, the nra report had a pretty rough first day of fact checking. you're the one that discovered the gem about the minnesota incident that was wrong. what else have you found in fact checking of the report? >> well, i found the usual things you would expect from a big report from the nra. there's various points where there's slight of hand talking about incidents involving school shootings. i have to say, lawrence, i wasn't surprised to see this in the report. we covered the nra and mass shootings at mother jones for many months, and this is their m.o. they call for more guns, they play to fear and fantasy to sell that agenda. they're willing to twist the facts or use completely unreal facts as we see with them citing that mass shooting that never happened in minnesota. they point to a case at a high school in pearl, mississippi in 1997 where they hold it up as a shining example of an armed citizen, armed educate or and leave out the fact he was an army reservist, appeared to have intervened only after the

that from our experience. nra says assault weapons and high capacity magazines aren't a problem, and frank smythe, this country knows those weapons are a problem, there would be more people alive at the movie theater in aurora, colorado if he didn't have a magazine capable of firing 100 bullets. >> no, that's right, lawrence. also this taskforce report led by asa hutchinson who you had on last night was written by two firms, one based in texas and the other in idaho, one is an international security and intelligence firm, the other a tactical training firm. the essence of this report is they want to be able to go beyond arming police officers, which school safety experts agree with, that in certain cases you want armed police officers who are specially trained to be in schools. the nra wants to go beyond that and allow faculty, teachers and administrators who want to be armed to be trained to be armed. you've seen the outsourcing of diplomatic security to companies like blackwater overseas with disastrous results. this would be the outsourcing of school security to private security firms.

,000. joining me, mike smyth, who is a contributor to frank, the money seems really lopsided on lobbying. what about campaign contributions, that sort of thing? >> 80% of republicans in this congress have received money from the national rifle association at some point in their career. and 42 out of the 45 senators who recently voted against gun safety legislation have received nra money in their last election cycle. so it's clear that these senators and other legislators in the house have been following the deckitatictates of the gun . what is different is mayor bloomberg has entered the field, and aupet by gabby giffords and her husband mark, and are raising money looking forward to the 2014 elections. the nra is already concerned about the 2014 elections and has made it clear, quoting president obama, that the fight has only begun. what we saw in the past few months in this debate about gun safety legislation that failed in congress will pick up again in the run-up to the 2014 elections and perhaps even beyond. >> frank, gabby giffords' group announced they're going to be
